Greensboro, NC— Officers say they responded to a vehicle collision in Greensboro Saturday evening on West Terrell Street.

During the investigation they were able to determine that Jeremiah Wills, Jr was riding a 2004 Kawasaki ZR1000 east bound on Terrell Street.

Willis was later identified as a teacher and track coach at Page High School in Greensboro.(I do not believe Mr. Wills was the head track coach.)

Investigators say Willis lost control of the bike and hit a vehicle parked on the street. The car was unoccupied.

Willis died from his injuries that he received in the collision.

A Guilford County Schools spokesperson says Wills started with the school system in August 2000. He was a Career and Technical Education teacher for Page High School.

Grief counselors were at the school to talk with students.

  • Emily said,

    He is not the head track coach.

  • Bryan said,

    David Rogers is still the track coach. Wills was an assistant for the sprinters.

    Why can’t these guys get these facts right?!? Come on Fox 8….

  • Bryan said,

    And come on News 2…forgot they had it there as well.

  • Unknown said,

    This is a tragedy and all you three can write about is how the facts are wrong. At least pay tribute to this man’s legacy.
